With just a couple of days left til Kate Moss’ final collection, I thought I’d take a moment to discuss whether it’s worth the hype. Since her first collection 3 years ago, there has always been a phenomenal amount of hype about each collection. Commercially, they were a huge success but I think there were always some people who were disappointed. Although the campaign shots always look great, I think that’s more down to Kate’s ability to sell anything. In stores, the clothes always looked a little bit ‘meh’ to me and they didn’t seem so much designed as pieces from Kate’s own wardrobe just slightly tweaked. But isn’t that what it’s about? The scores of young girls who queue up for a piece of the collection just want to emulate Kate’s style.
For me, that’s not really enough for me to buy something. I think I just expect something more. There are always some nice pieces and pretty dresses. What do you think, are you going to get a piece from the final collection?
